Beavercreek was back on the ice Friday night for what turned out to be their first regular season road game of the season when they faced off against the Mason Comets at the Sports Plus. Although the Comets were participants in the Frozen Creek the weekend prior, the two teams did not play against each other during the tournament. As with many Creek hockey games this season, the better part of the first period was a feel out process and the game remained scoreless until Mason Mikesch scored on an unassisted tally. Shortly after that Mikesch scored on a power play goal that was a snipe shot from the top of the circles. Later in the first, Braden Cox found pay dirt off the rebound a shot from Marshal Enfield. Not to be out done, Mikesch scored his third goal giving him a hat trick in the first! Mason responded with a goal of their own, however, Creek sported a 4-1 lead after one.
Mikesch got the lone goal in the second, on a dipsy doo how do you do move that left the Comet’s goal tender on his belly. Cole Gutterman lit the lamp early in the third off a sweet pass from Mikesch from behind the net. Mikesch ended the scoring on the evening on another sniper shot, which gave him 5 goals on the evening! Kevin Bovair was the Beaver’s net minder for most of the game and turned away 10 shots for the victory. Ben Duford came on late in the game and turned away two shots. Next up for Creek is another SWOHSHL affair, this one against the Sycamore Aviators Saturday night at 9:30 at Sports Plus.
